UK: Firefly, supplier of Hybrid power generators (HPGs) for the events sector, has announced that its Cygnus HPG has saved over one million litres of diesel since its launch in April 2013.
With increasing requirements from event organisers to power events with a more sustainable, environmentally friendly approach, Firefly creates the appropriate renewable energy solution for any event, whilst significantly reducing fuel costs.
As an experienced and trusted supplier of affordable sustainable power, Firefly has been powering festivals and live events since 2007. Firefly provide turnkey low emission temporary power, technical and creative services. Working with festival organisers from conception to implementation, Firefly provides power that doesn’t cost the earth.
Firefly’s Director Andy Mead commented: “The 2014 summer season has been the company’s best yet, as more and more events are incorporating Firefly’s hybrid technology. We have delivered fantastic savings for clients both in the UK and Europe, providing full site power services for We Love Green in Paris and Shambala festival here in the UK using 100% renewable power.”
Chris Johnson, Director of Shambala said: “Where I think hybrid technology is a real step forward is that during times of low power demand, the batteries of the hybrid system can handle the supply. But when demand is increased and the battery is unable to supply, in real-time, the generator then kicks in for the power required. For Shambala festival, it means massively reduced fuel bills, thanks to Firefly.”
The Cygnus HPG range has received an impressive overhaul of both appearance and performance to service large scale events. This continuous investment in Firefly’s rapidly growing fleet means that clients benefit from the latest in cutting-edge hybrid power. Working with Firefly’s customers and listening to market needs of the events industry has been the key to the success of the range. The result is a fleet of HPGs that can be easily integrated to work alongside diesel or biodiesel generators and solar pv.
The complete range of Cygnus Hybrid Power Generators will be on display at this year’s Showman’s Show and visitors are encouraged to visit the Firefly stand, to see how they can contribute to carbon reduction, whilst also significantly reducing their fuel bill.
The latest editions of the newly redeveloped smaller models of the Cygnus HPG One and Cygnus HPG Two will also be on display. Whilst the fleet can scale up to operate at large events, these new units offer the flexibility to provide power for all requirements – from Toilets to stage power.
Mead concluded: “The huge success of the range has led to the design and creation of new units, which we will be launching in 2015”.
